Marion is a five piece band formed in 1993 and originates from Macclesfield, Cheshire.
They rose to fame through the Britpop era and gigged heavily, releasing albums 'This World And Body' (1995) and 'The Program’ (1998). The band has had a number of changes throughout the years.
The current line-up is: Jaime Harding (lead singer), Phil Cunningham (guitar), Tony Grantham (guitar) Che Hargreaves (bass guitar) and Jack Mitchell (drums).
For 'This World And Body' tour Nick Gilberts replaced Philips on bass and with the success of the first album, Marion toured worldwide.
With success, came pressure. Tony Grantham left the band in 1998 and by this time the band members were going in different directions.
During the late ‘90s and mid ‘00s, Marion remained in the background but by 2006, Harding and Cunningham started working together again.
In November 2011, the (original line-up) announced a secret gig for 60 people in their hometown to the delight of their fans.
